 PADRIGHT()
 Pads a string on the right to a particular length
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Syntax

     PADRIGHT(<cString>,<nLength>,[<cCharacter|
        nCharacter>]) --> cString

 Arguments

     <cString>  Designates the string that is processed.

     <nLength>  Designates the selected new length for <cString>.

     <cCharacter|nCharacter>  Designates the character with which the
     beginning of the <cString> string is filled.  The default value is a
     space, CHR(32).

 Returns

     The processed <cString> is returned.

 Description

     PADRIGHT() allows you to pad the end of a character string with
     characters, in accordance with a length specification.  Spaces or any
     other characters that you choose can be used.

 Notes

     .  The function works like the Clipper LEFT() function when
        <nLength> is shorter than the length of <cString>.  If <nLength> is
        negative, PADRIGHT() returns a null string.

     .  When the <cCharacter|nCharacter> parameter is not specified,
        spaces are automatically used for padding.

 Examples

     .  The function works like LEFT():

        ? PADRIGHT("123456", 4)              // "1234"

     .  Pad the right with spaces:

        ? PADRIGHT("123456", 8)              // "123456  "

     .  Pad the right with the "." character:

        ? PADRIGHT("123456", 8, ".")         // "123456.."
